This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

£499.99 for the non pre OC'd Asus 2070 Super DUAL EVO. Comes with the new CoD game and a GIGABYTE 512GB NVME SSD, together worth £105.98. On paper, this makes the 2070 Super £394.03. Realistically, you won't get £105.98 selling them on, but it's still a good saving making it one of the best 2070Super deals out there. It's not the highest spec 2070 Super, but nothing a good, careful overclock can't address

ASUS offer 3 year warranty. A hot deal atm is palit which overs only 2 years. Not a huge deal breaker, but that third year will be handy for many that keep cards more than 2 years.

Sounds good. Ray tracing, 1080 ti power, AAA game, 500gig SSD.
Just wanna point out the drive is an older version that's now EOL so probably clearing stock. The cooler on this particular card is also somewhat meh. The palit card is also £460 with the free game, so that means you're essentially paying £40 extra for the SSD

Which is a good 2070s card to get? New to this and looking for this card variant . Should I opt for an Oc version and is there a particular brand which is better

Fair point, still a £10 saving in the long run. You're right, these deals are often worded in a way to make it appear great for the customer, but in realism it's a stock clearing exercise. EOL or otherwise, it's still a great drive for games or fast document access and for free, you can't argue at a 500GB NVME SSD It has 5 years warranty and waaaay adequate read/writes so for a game drive it's spot on. I wouldn't really care that it's EOL, personally.

Another thing to think about is warranty. I'll check now what ASUS offer comapred to Palit.

EDIT: Just checked. You get 3 years warranty with Asus compared to 2 with Palit. Not a huge price deciding factor, but I tend to keep GPUs for 3-4 years so it's something I'd want.

OC versions are definitely not worth it as you're getting barely any performance. Go for the cheapest one you can find. EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI and Zotac are what I'd recommend. Zotac and Gigabyte have RMA centres in the UK, and I believe EVGA might too.

ASUS cards are generally overpriced and lacking in quality, in particular their heatsinks. Palit is ok too but warranty experience is not as easy a Zotac/Gigabyte/EVGA.

Yeah that's my point, so I'm not sure why this is losing so much heat. Yeah it's £500 real world cash, but you're getting £103 of stuff. CoD means nothing to me, but they all come with it anyway. Take £56 off for the SSD (that's what it costs separately) and it's one of the cheapest 2070Supers available.

I can understand if the cooler is truly awful on this model though; I'll have to do research. ASUS was always a premium brand, so I'll be surprised and disappointed if this is a poor performer in terms of noise and temps.

Posts decent 2070 Super deal, gets crap heat. Sees a 2080Super deal at £620; £120 more netting only a little more performance and it has +230 heat.

What's going on?!

Why is warranty important for these cards do they generally mess up ?

Its good to have a safety net if anything does go wrong as its all electronics at the end of the day and you may get unlucky. Fans and memory chips are the most common thing to fail from experience although thats not to say it happens in the first year or something, only that most dead cards I've had or come across have been so for these reasons.

Having a trouble free RMA process is always nice.

It's not super important and it should alter a decision too much, but I'd definitely recommend 3 years over 2. I wouldn't put that above going with a better, more reputable brand, but as said earlier, things fail at random times. I'm fairly confident overclocking them doesn't void the warranty but can increase the risk of a failure. Don't quote me on that though.

Try posting again, it's now £479.99 with call of duty and a ssd drive. Possibly an even better deat than this
And realistically on eBay how much could you get for the extras
